A big THANK YOU from David for all the Holiday/Birthday greetings & gifts he received in the packages I sent. (KS) pic.twitter.com/fDvGXISe
Read this post if you want to see what David has been doing lately…
The usual warning applies: There are videos and pictures from the mission and stuff. Don’t read further if you don’t want to.
No videos or cameras were allowed, but this was what we heard happen from tweets (mainly from Gladys who recounted the experience on The Voice chat). For a detailed recap, head over to ohmyheckdavidarchie tumblr or The Voice.
Tonight’s concert feedback – there was salsa, kicking, boxing & kneeling — all from
#DavidArchie - ok kill me now! waaaahhh!

@DavidArchie‘s concert in Rancagua. Archies, don’t forget those defib by 2014!
I cant belive it! Today i was in a “concert” with Elder
@DavidArchie :) was Amazin
@DavidArchie says “bacán” and “cachai” he loves Chile
It’s funny that he actually sang Eye of The Tiger at the devotional event lol
“He came out boxing like a boxer when he sang Eye of The Tiger.” Aww David <33
“He apologized for the boxing act because missionaries don’t do that and laughed a lot, and he said he is no longer thin looking.” HAHAHAHA.
@DavidArchie had grown bigger. Like you know, MUSCULAR.
@DavidArchie wore a black suit, turquoise tie and a white hat. But the white hat was only for a song.
“HIS VOICE IS NOT CHANGING, BUT IS BETTER, HIS VOICE IS RESTED, THAT MUST BE IT…
Karate kicks, salsa dancing. Hero. SPANISH CONCERT. This is just too much. How about an encore when you get back,
@DavidArchie spoke entirely in Spanish, did some salsa and sang Hero. You have no idea how sexy that image in my head is right now

The David Archuleta Chilean fansite offers some guidelines:
PERO RECUERDEN QUE EL VIENE A CUMPLIR UNA MISION, NO POR SU CARRERA DE CANTANTE POR LO QUE PEDIMOS EL MAYOR RESPETO POSIBLE HACIA EL.
COMO ACTUAR SI LO VES?
1- Si no estas dispuesto a escuchar sobre la palabra de Dios lo mejor esque te alejes para evitar la histeria de Fans
2- No lo pidas autógrafos ni Fotos
3- No le digas “David soy una gran Fans Tuya” recuerda que el necesita estar concentrado en Dios.
4- No Grites ni corras a abrazarlo, el solo puede darte la mano.
5- Y lo mas importante, SIEMPRE PERO SIEMPRE mantén el máximo RESPETO HACIA EL.
Si alguien actúa de otra manera puede provocar que el “Presidente” de la misión lo regresa a casa antes de lo previsto y eso le haría mucho daño a David ya que el realmente quiere servir como misionero. Este tiempo es para el y Dios no para nosotros, en 2 años mas el volverá y podremos gritar su nombre, pedir canciones y mas pero ahora debemos respetar su decisión.
Translation courtesy of FOD:
BUT REMEMBER HE IS COMING TO COMPLY WITH HIS MISSION, NOT HIS SINGING CAREER SO WE ASK THE GREATEST RESPECT TO HIM AS POSSIBLE.
HOW TO ACT IF YOU SEE HIM
1 – If you are not willing to listen to the word of God the best thing to do is to get away to avoid hysteria of Fans
2 – Do not ask for autographs and photos
3 – Do not say “I’m a Fan David Yours” remembers he needs to stay focused on God.
4 – Do not scream or run to embrace him, he can only shake your hand.
5 – And most importantly, ALWAYS BUT ALWAYS hold the highest respect for him.
If someone acts otherwise it may cause the “President” of the mission to send David home earlier than expected and that would do a great harm to David and he really wants to serve as a missionary. This time is for him and God , in 2 years he will return and we can scream his name, request songs and more, but for now we must respect his decision.
Not sure how many of you are David Archuleta fans, but I asked my Dad (who is his mission president) if I could share something about his arrival in Chile and this is what he had to say about him, “He is a very humble, non-ego person..Not centered on himself. He is just GOOD. That is the word for him. And he is very excited to be here and loves his trainer and has already taught some lessons in his first sector”. Pretty cool. Out of respect for Elder Archuleta I wouldn’t want to get more specific than that on his experiences. Just good to know he is doing something good and for the right reasons. #respect #mormon #lds #missionary#archuleta
Rolling Stone magazine, courtesy of SnowAngelz:
David has landed safe and sound in South America and is excited for this new adventure he is about to begin. (KS)
David has stared his next adventure on this 2 year journey and I hope you all show him the respect and the privacy he needs. I will do my best to keep you all informed when I can and I am keeping him updated about ya’ll.
To answer some of your questions. I do still have contact with @DavidArchie and should hear from him once a week. He is still accepting mail at his PO Box and I will be sending him packages every once and a while.
There were reports that David was seen at the airport departing for South America for his mission and hanging with other missionaries. Let’s pray for safe travels for him and his group!
“HAVE A SAFE TRIP DEAR DAVID. GOD BE WITH YOU TILL WE MEET AGAIN! ♥”
My friend’s brother just got a new roommate on his mission. Guess who? David Archuleta.
So decided to re-post this! So I have a cute story about @DavidArchie at the MTC. And I am telling it with permission. So my friend Sharlyn went into the MTC the same day David did. Although she is going to Rome on her mission. The other day she was holding open a door for a bunch of missionaries and all of a sudden someone reached up over her head and took a hold of the door for her. She turned to thank the person who decided to hold the door and it was David!!! What a GENTLEMAN!!! Love that young Man!!
From Sonotoveryou on FOD:
saw David at the airport…he looks radiant and happy- I chose to give him his space and did not take pictures…good luck in Chile! a fan!
no he had his companion and several other missionaries were flying to..but they always have thier companion with them. Years ago the families could come and say goodbye, now the missionaries fly out with missionaries. I must admit I waved and he waved back, but you think he was happy before, you should see him now! He looked great!!!! and a huge smile from ear to ear…he is doing the right thing! so proud to be a fan!

¡David Archuleta sigue vivo!
El artista de madre hondureña lanza su tercer disco bajo el título de “The other side of Down”
Su popularidad después de ser segundo lugar en el American Idol no es tan grande como la Kelly Clarkson o Daughtry, pero el joven mormón sigue con vida en la música y millones de fan a nivel mundial comprando sus discos. “The other side of Down” es su última producción.
Para David, su nuevo disco tiene un sonido… ¿tonto? “Soy muy tonto, así que pensé: ‘Este álbum necesita ser más yo, y yo soy tonto, así que eso tendrá que estar en la música. Habla de cómo soy todo el tiempo y cómo no entiendo lo que pasa”, explica.
El joven de 19 años dice sentirse aún nervioso al inicio de cada grabación. “Siempre estoy nervioso… porque no hay vuelta atrás, una vez que algo ya está en el álbum. Usualmente unas horas antes me siento más cómodo y me pongo a experimentar con notas”, agrega.
El primer sencillo de este disco se tituló “Something ‘Bout Love” y se publicó en el mes de julio en radios y canales internacionales. David dice estar viviendo grandes experiencias, a pesar de las dificultades.
“No es fácil pero definitivamente vale la pena. Trabajé tanto por esto y nadie me puede quitar las experiencias y los aprendizajes vividos”, agrega. Para la elaboración de este CD, David estuvo bien claro en lo que quería.
“Quiero que la gente diga, ‘esto es David hablando, en lugar de simplemente interpretar’ y estoy seguro de que habrá canciones en las que quiero demostrar a la gente quién soy, lo que mi personalidad es”.
Sobre los nuevos jurados del popular programa American Idol, Archuleta opina: “Va a ser interesante ver sus técnicas y escuchar sus opiniones porque realmente importan. El modo en que el público pensaba. “Veamos lo que Simon va a decir”, lo llevaba a uno a preguntarse lo mismo”, declara.
El segundo sencillo del joven artista ya suena en las radios locales, se titula “Elevator” y lo puedes pedir en tu radio favorita.

David Archuleta is still alive!
Honduran mother artist releases his third album under the title “The Other Side of Down”
Its popularity after being second in the American Idol is not as big as Kelly Clarkson and Daughtry, but the young Mormon still alive in music and millions of fans worldwide buying their records. “The other side of Down” is their latest production.
For David, his new album has a sound … stupid? “I’m very silly, so I thought, ‘This album needs to be more myself, and I’m dumb, so this will have to be in music. Talk about how I am all the time and I do not understand how it happens, “he explains.
The 19 year old says she is still nervous at the start of each recording. “I’m always nervous … because there is no turning back, once something is already in the album. Usually a few hours before I feel more comfortable and I get to experiment with notes, “he adds.
The first single from that album was titled “Something ‘Bout Love” and was published in July in radio and international channels. David says he is going through great experiences, despite the difficulties.
“It’s not easy but definitely worth it. Worked so hard for this and nobody can remove the lived experiences and learning, “he adds. For the preparation of this CD, David was very clear about what I wanted.
“I want people to say, ‘This is David speaking, rather than simply interpret’ and I’m sure there will be songs that I want to show people who I am, what my personality is.”
On the new jury’s popular American Idol, Archuleta says: “It will be interesting to see their techniques and listen to their opinions because really matter. The way the public thought. “Let’s see what Simon will say” carried one to wonder the same, “he says.
The second single from the young artist and plays on local radio, is entitled “Elevator” and you can ask your favorite radio.
